    Cheers mate, did run it full rigid for a time when I was just using it to get ti work and back, but I started to like the local trails more. Just wanna get aome nice green bit for it, but want them all the same green :(
  • I started a similar way with the c2w,but found riding outside of the commute more fun and took off from there.....The blue/white looks great,shall lookout for the coming green changes.I've gone colour overload on my ride but the end result works for me ;)

    Right so a little bit of an update, went down to Coed Y Brennin last weekend with a few mates for a ride round and WOW i was not expecting it to be like it was, loved every moment of being there, even though it did rain for about 5 hours out of the 6 and a half we where out, but anyway onto the update.

    While there i came off a fair few times, one which involved my knee dropping onto a rock (OUCH) also the big ring biting the back of my leg, so i went ahead and brought a Blackspire Defender, looks good so far heres a picture..



    Also here a few of how the bike sits now, not had enough time to clean her properly since ive got back as ive been busy with Work, hoping to get a few new parts over the next few months!!


  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    Right, so im hoping that over the next few months I can try to get myself a new frame, lookibg at going with a Commencal El Camino S or the Meta SL , If I can get one for the right price :-)

    That's fine mate, I work at a steels extrusion so may get one of the fitters to make me up a similar kind of bracket.

    No worrys dude, its pretyy much 2 pieces of ally, 2 holes on the centres of your top 2 bolts for your stem, 2 little steel spacers to bolt down too. And a hole thru the top part to screw into the lights :-)

    Right then bud, finally got around to getting the pictures of the mount for you!! here you go!!




    Hope this help you see, if not just PM me and ill do my best to explain!! :D

    Hopfully will have a better update this week aswell ;D
  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    Right then, i said i was waiting for a few small parts and was going to do some tinkering with the bike, i did most of it last night and the new parts arrived this morning, so first for the new parts:


    I like getting new shiney parts... next job was to take the stem risers out which you can see on the earlier pictures, which now looks like this (please excuse the messy light cables)


    Acctually fells alots nicer that it did with the riser in aswell, just need to look into a new stem with a lower stack height though as the steerer is only just above the second bolt.. :(

    Anyway time for a few pictures of the new parts fitted..


    May not be to everyones taste, but i like it :D
    People comments are very welcome for other ideas or criticism i dont mind! :D
  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    Some new pictures to come of the new stem soon, not got around to taking many pictures as ive been trying to get out riding, feels much more solid with the new stem though really liking how it feels!!
  • Not a bad bike... shame about the owner though :P Just kidding, love you really Dawesy :)
  • James QJames Q Posts: 201
    Wasnt to sure on the grips when they were off the bike but on the bike they look awesome!
  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    Wattey - you finally joined then you cheeky swine!!

    James - Cheers mate, they do look alot nicer on tbh :-) next thing too look at is a new frame :-) not got the money yet though :(
  • L3BIUSL3BIUS Posts: 91
    Loving the blackspire defender and those grips! Looks like its a pretty sweet project coming on :D
    I think its all the little things that make it yours, and the set up of parts that you have chosen and how its set for you that is important! which it looks like youve got! Exited to see where it goes!

    Yeah its all coming along nicely, last main thing to buy is a new frame, looking at staying hardtail with it but changing to steel for strentgh as this frame does seem weak. That will hopefully be here over the xmas break then gotta get her built back up! :-)
  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    So new Frame has been chosen, going for the On One Inbred in Matt black, going to get it just after new year so pictures will be there to follow, also will have a new headset as i picked that up today after work nice Black Hope one :D
  • Dawesy92Dawesy92 Posts: 606
    So, little bit of an update, no pictures as of yet, but a new frame has been ordered courtesy of planet x having 20% off hopfully have that soon and get some new pictures up..
